Just to start, we are in Manitoba and do tillage. How is the chopper on you combine? We run a 2188 and cx8090 with a fine cut chopper. If it’s dry, the Cx just throws powder out, even in 150 bu oats. 2188 always leaves way more residue to run through. Even after tillage, you can see where each combine ran in the spring.
8820 has a decent chopper, the 1688 I HAD (sold it) needed the chopper rebuilt straw was pretty shaggy coming out of it so that is some of the problem in the low spots mostly.
